    How can you correct if you have already submitted it? Do you mean you submitted online? Normally with forms there is a space for any other information and you cna include it there, bit cross out cleanly the mistaken info.

    Personally I would have had a go at changing the 7 to an 8. or crossed the seven out and put 9 above.

    Id have probably put Muhammad in the intended box and put a line through the other box.

    As backup I would have attached a piece of paper pointing out the error and the amendment you made, then signed and dated it.

    Hi,

    i discussed with my uni they asked me to edit/ correct it on printed application form and inform the ECO during interview and they also said it should not effect your application. i did the same, but up till now i have not received my application decision will inform you the outcome but hopefully it will be positive..
